After spending the night traveling around Grand Forks in a party bus, Lisa Johnson and her friends ate an early morning breakfast at the Big Sioux truck stop.


When they got back on the bus an hour and a half later, Johnson's coat was gone.

It wasn't just any old coat. It was a full-length, fox and coyote fur coat that cost $12,000. Johnson's fiance, a farmer from Minto, N.D., had given it to her two days before as an engagement present.
